I've never thought highly of Helen Thomas but when she's fed up at the Obama administration that's pretty telling. She's an uber-liberal who, as far as I know, has kissed Obama's ass like most of the rest of the mainstream media. Here she is, along with Chip Reid of CBS News, questioning the integrity of an Obama administration Town Hall event about healthcare in America. What's being questioned is the idea of the president using Pre-selected questions. That will allow him to skate through with ease and make his agenda look good. It's not right to have nobody challenging this healthcare agenda that the president wants to force upon us. Is this the presidency that 53% of the voters voted for? It's all about control -- Control the people, look good, if possible don't allow them to question hard and challenging questions. What happened to transparency? That was just another lie.
With Obama throwing money at everything, he has caused the deficit to skyrocket and there's simply no end or relief in sight. His ideas cost a LOT of money and this is America where Raising Taxes is not wanted by a majority of the people. (Is that foolish thinking?! Should people be wanting to pay higher taxes? That's insanity not to mention it's UNamerican.) When taxes are raised/people's cost of living escalates higher than it is today, then there will be severe backlash against those responsible for that. This is America where people want to keep MORE of the money they work hard to earn. I'm working for ME and MY FAMILY ONLY. That's American. We don't want to feel like we're living in a commune where our paychecks are shared with the wealthy and with those who don't strive to make anything of their lives. My neighbor is not my financial responsibility. I do want to help my neighbors... but I want that to be MY choice. Special interest programs might be created with the best of intentions -- but don't force me to pay for them.
Basically -- FUCK YOU, federal government (or at least all of you who want to raise our taxes/cost of living. Those who don't: you're cool. Thank you.)
And that concludes my post-run rant. It's been awhile.
